my new favorite salad

it's been far too long...i miss you!  so in honor of my return to mkp after the weeks of feeling crazy busy and our #roadtripvacation (i used that hashtag on instagram to document our adventures...follow me! i'm 'mykindaperfect'!), i'm sharing something that will make your taste buds go wild!  

okay, so this salad is not new...and it's not even new to me. but, i am newly obsessed.  seriously, i have it for lunch more days than not.  it's really that good.

and it's super simple!  baby spinach salad with pickled onions, strawberries, goat cheese, and pecans. 

'holy deliciousness' is what i call it.  

i love absolutely everything about this salad.  at first, i wanted to tell you that the pickled onions are what make this salad (and i'll share that super simple, super awesome recipe later), but then i think it's the strawberries with their sweetness...but the crunch of the pecans is so yummy. and the goat cheese...i love me some chèvre.  so really, what i'm trying to tell you is whole thing is just crazy tasty.  there is sweet, soft, tangy, crunchy, earthy, tart, and oh so wonderful. 

i haven't been using dressing most times i have this salad because the pickled onion juice, strawberry juice, and goat cheese coat most bites nicely. but, i have tried a (random grocery purchase) dressing that was fantastic: hannaford brand sweet herb vinaigrette. it's also a little sweet and a little tangy, so it goes really well with the flavors of the fresh fruit and veggies. 

i've also added grilled chicken to this salad for some extra protein and it's delicious!

make this salad an you won't be sorry. it may become your new favorite salad too!

if you have a recipe you'd like me to feature on my kinda perfect, just email me here and i'll whip it up and share it on the blog! =)  you know i love new recipes, so send them my way!
